April and May

April and May flew by...a few snow storms...a giant hail storm...another bout of head lice...and poof it is almost summer!

Here are a few highlights.

Keira sure does love herself a puppy pile (so does Sadie).


Grammy had a wonderful birthday party with delicious empanadas.


The kids have been into coloring lately (inspired by their Pops).


A few coworkers / friends and I hit the Aurora mall for Tattoos (#malltattoos #bucketlist #friendsdontletfriendsgettattooedalone).


We may have also followed the trip to Tengu with DQ Blizzards.


I got a bee tattoo and I love it!


Chase completed his Black Belt testing!  I am so proud of him. He is the youngest Omniform Black Belt! He worked so hard for this goal and it was an incredibly hard test.  Congratulations Chase - you're amazing!







Such an accomplishment!

Sadie is getting so big!  I think she is bigger than Stark now.


Leah turned 21 in March so B and I took her to Blackhawk for a Mother's Day / Birthday extravaganza.  We were big losers but we had a blast, we even managed to score free all you can eat crab leg buffet.  


Chase's Black Belt Ceremony...


Look at that happy kiddo!


Woooohoooo!


Random cute dog pic.


This weekend we had a fun packed schedule.  Chase had a play date and B and I had lunch with a friend on Saturday.  We ended the day with a BBQ at the neighbor's house which included a highly competitive adult Jenga game.  B and I both avoided making the tower fall yippee. 


Sunday was our 13th wedding anniversary.  It was a wonderful day.  We took the kids to Krispy Kreme for donuts in the morning and then did some shopping at Park Meadows mall.  My folks watched the kids after that and Boris and I took a stab at some abstract acrylic painting and made some art for my office (it looks better in real life I swear).  We had a great time with that and then went to the Concourse for dinner.



Love you B - best husband ever - Happy Anniversary!!!  

Here is a picture of Keira trying on the wig I bought for a work thing while at the mall.  Long purple hair suits her.


Here is miss thing trying on her new leotard for gymnastics class which she starts next week.  Adorable!!!


Looking forward to summer, nice weather, and more fun!

March

On March 14th we lost B's grandmother.  She was such a wonderful, strong, caring woman and she will be missed by us all.  She was 93.5 years old and she lived an amazing life.




We took our annual trip to San Diego with my folks.  It was a wonderful trip and much needed time away.


Keira does the funniest poses for pictures.



The kids both really loved the beach this trip.



Keira would scream "Oh my god oh my god oh my god" while she ran and played in the surf.




We saw some sea lions which was fun.  Chase really enjoyed the tide pools...Keira was out off by the smell.









I made B take a head shot for the new consulting websites...I thought I would post it since I never get pics of him!


We rented a golf cart again - which Keira referred to as "The Roller Coaster".


Now we are back in Denver and back to work.  Boris officially gave his notice at his corporate job - independent consulting here we come!

In other random news my parents mentioned that one of my cousins had been telling them about bullet journals so I did some Googling and I am excited to give it a try!  I will let you know how it goes.

Q1 2017 - Gone already

I am not sure what happened but an entire quarter managed to escape me!  Here is a long photo update.

Chase is doing great - I can't believe he is already half way through 4th grade!


Random pic of myself that I used for a work head shot.


Breakfast at Chick Fil A - hug or choke hold?


Everyone likes to rock out in a tiara right???


Keira and her dolly friend - dressed to match.



We have entered the F-ing fours early - giant tantrums all the time - this particular one was because I put toothpaste on her toothbrush - I'm so evil...


Keira has her own sense of style.


For my birthday my amazing co-workers decorated my cube with grumpy cats, queso, and candy!


Heart hair just for fun...


Cute kiddo pics!





Chase is the best movie buddy ever - I can always count on him to go with me.


Passed out - it's the only way she sleeps.


Poor girl bonked her head on the banister!  That bump grew in a few seconds!


Valentine's day was a hit this year, not as much fun as Halloween but close.



My aunt got a new puppy - it is so cute - the kids sure love little Tippy,





Keira picked this outfit out at the mall for Easter - she is such a princess.


...and this is what she wears when I let her pick her outfits...


We saw Kong which was fun.


A pic of the whole family for Chinese New Year.


Keira playing at my aunt's house - science fun.


Sadie is getting so big!  Keira sure does love a dog pile.


Keira is learning to write her name - very exciting.


Grandmas and the girls.


Last but not least - Stark sure does look comfy doesn't he?


In other exciting news B will be starting his own consulting firm - Pivotal Moment Consulting!  Wish us luck on our new adventure.
